Violator was a middleweight robot which competed in Seasons 3.0 and 4.0 of BattleBots. It was an arrow-shaped robot armed with a CO2-powered spike which was later replaced with a horizontal spinning blade. Violator was driven by an on-board Linux computer, hence the team name TuxBot (however, this computer was not used during Season 3.0 due to safety issues and it was unknown if it was remedied for Season 4.0). It performed decently in competition, both winning and losing twice.
Violator's first ever match in BattleBots was against Shredbot. Violator won by KO at 42 seconds and advanced to the next preliminary round, where it faced Bottom Dweller. However, Bottom Dweller had technical issues and was forced to forfeit. Violator won by default and advanced to the final preliminary round, where it faced F5. F5 won by KO at 1:50 and Violator was eliminated from the tournament.
Due to lack of participants, Violator received two byes in the final preliminary rounds. Because of this, Violator was already in the TV rounds, where it faced Bouncing Betty. Bouncing Betty won on a 31-14 judge's decision and Violator was eliminated from the tournament again.
Because it lost in the round of 64, Violator couldn't participate the middleweight consolation rumble at the end of the tournament.
- Wins: 2
- Losses: 2
